This project is to invistigate and study on how electric energy can be harversted from kinetic energy and used to charge other electronic devices. Before start to build the hardware of micro wind generator, the design and simulation using software will be done to test the result. Then a prototype will be constructed to give an insight and demonstrate the whole process and therefore giving out the results that support the objectives. Performance of the prototype is observed and will be decide whether it needs to be improved on certain aspects. This micro wind generator uses brushless DC fan that acts as an electrical power generator to convert mechanical rotation, as a source of kinetic energy into electrical energy with alternating current. The other specification is that it uses off-grid application which isolated electricity network. A capacitor is used to store electrical charges generated by the generator which can be used in applications that could provide safety wireless monitoring of a wind tunnel for workers working in underground or passenger of mass rapid transit (MRT). In this project, the results demonstrate the potential of the device in powering low power electronic devices. In this case, the power supply to multivibrator circuit which consists of two red LEDs. The blinking of the LEDs is an indication of transmitting and receiving data from wireless sensing applications.
